Finit






Back in September when I offered this clutch as a customizable
here on the blog,
I could never have imagined that the choices of the woman who claimed it would so move me and inspire such joy in the making:
I still get knocked out by how much every piece surprises.

I loved every hammer blow and each knife cut.
I cannot express how deeply I adore working with tooling leather.

I have a new smaller hobo bag I am working on, something that should be affordable and
delightful in every way.

A small hobo hag with a hummingbird, scalloped edges and the organic lace I worked with on the scarflettes last winter.

I am so jazzed about it already!!

Beautiful, beautiful! It's so lovely that I caught myself wanting to clap when the pictures appeared on my monitor (but I don't think you would have heard my applause and it probably would have startled Fritz, our chinchilla).

You have a real gift.
